Is there a difference in different brands and sources for front bearings?
I got a price of $77 each from one place. CBC Bearings quoted $104. Ford's price (for taxis) was $148 inc GST.
Then there's eBay.
This listing has them for $49.95 for the pair. Blimey.
A search of eBay for "BF Falcon bearing" shows various other cheap options.
Sure, I can go with the belief that the more I pay the better the quality will be, but that also depends on profit margins along the supply chain. A bit like how you can pay $133 for a key blank from Ford, $25 on eBay or $8 from China.
So, is there a good, valid reason to not buy the cheap eBay ones?
Is there any particular brand or supply of front bearing hubs that can be confirmed better than others?
